  • Started brewing back in the nineties, in Oslo/Norway, using extract kits. I brewed for my annual x-mas party. Brewed a few batches of wine too. The results were not very consistent and I gave up. Not many sources of good info back in those days. Internet was something we had only heard of. Craft beer interest grew from 2007 onwards when I had moved from Ireland to France where I got exposed to French and Belgian ales with plenty of taste (and alcohol). From being interested, seeking knowledge led to sources such as the Jamil Show and this home b rew forum, and started to gather the pieces and build up my home brewery. Brewing in my garage with a cheap, manual, home-made setup, based on gravity, electricity and gas.

    After lagering for over a month at 2°C, this was dry hopped and bottled, still at 1.020. The
    result is not very good, due to the yeast profile. It's really not the clean lager I hoped for.

    Also realized I don't have the right type carafa to do it properly. It should be the dehusked
    type (carafa special 111). Anyone tainted their bipa with something else than grain? Could one
    not just br...

    So, you all pointed out this was gonna be too roasty for a bipa, and you were of course
    correct... Indeed turned out more like a hoppy/cascadian stout. It's tasty now but not too
    balanced, there are s...

    The longer the better, but will be drinkable after a month.I have only brewed it all-grain
    using 100% pilsner malt.The stated FG is too high. This should ferment to below 1.010

    Bottleday! I used these tea-filters for dry hopping. Soaked them in star-san and filled them
    with 20 grams cascade pellets in each filter. Worked a treat, huge hop aroma during transfer! I
